Junior Hannah Burvill qualified individually for the NCAA Championships for her second consecutive season in the 200 free, 100 free, and 50 free. She ranks 53rd in the 50 free (22.55), 55th in the 100 free (48.97), and 31st in the 200 free (1:45.04).
Two women qualified off the boards during the NCAA Zone D Diving Championships last week; sophomore Jayah Mathews and freshman Sam Tamborski. Mathews will compete on both the 1-meter and 3-meter springboards, while Tamborski will compete solely on the 3-meter.
“I’m excited to get into the flow of the meet and race in a pool I haven’t experienced before. My goal heading into the meet is to stay relaxed and have fun with it, no matter the outcome. This will help me set some targets for myself going into my final season next year.”
“It’s exciting knowing this is the final meet of the season. This weekend I would like to continue to dive how I have been all season. I’ve had a great season, so keeping my dives consistent or a little better would make me happy. The familiarity of the pool definitely helps with not only my dives but with the nerves as well.”
Prelims of the championships will be available to watch (free of charge) on TexasSports.com.  Finals will be available on ESPN3. Live stats are available on hawkeyesports.com.
